Canon's Black Friday Specials

Everyone wants your money. Canon wants you to Rebel (or better). 

I'd say that this year Canon finds themselves a bit in the same position Nikon did awhile ago: there's a lot of previous generation gear showing up in the Canon holiday offerings. What that tends to mean is no dual-pixel sensor, so be careful in analyzing the offerings. Unlike Nikon, Canon is discounting the King of the Hill (1Dx Mark II in Canon's case) at US$5699 (US$300 savings). 

There are quite a few offerings from Canon, so use the advertiser link at the bottom of this article to access them all. 

Overall, there's quite a range of older gear (EOS M3, SL1, Rebel T5/T6, 5D II/III) mixed in with a few newer bodies. A lot of key lenses do have a discount. A couple I can heartily recommend:

  • 40mm f/2.8 STM for US$179 (US$20 savings)
  • 70-200mm f/4L IS USM for US$1099 (US$100 savings)
  • 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM for US$1999 (US$200 savings)

Some of the EF primes have a modest discount if you need to fill in a hole, too. Click on the banner below to see all the savings.
